School District Governance of NH – “Preparing for the Future of Schooling”


Preparing for the Future of Schooling

In this seminar, we will discuss the future of schools – what school board members need to know about the changes (technological, demographic, economic, and political) that they will be facing, and ways to view potential problems as opportunities.

Join us to hear the visions of our two speakers, to think about the future, and to ask questions and share your visions.

This event is designed to benefit elected school district officials, but the public is also welcome, subject to space availability.
